This Guide summarizes how to use VNC remote access and control software from RealVNC™ to connect two computers over a network and take control of one (the host computer) from the other (a client computer), irrespective of where the two are in the world, or incompatibilities they may have in platform, architecture, or operating system.
VNC consists of two components: VNC Server and VNC Viewer. All the information in this Guide applies to connections established between a client computer running the latest version of VNC Viewer and a host computer licensed to use VNC Server (Enterprise). For a list of other products and license types to which some information may also apply, see Applicable software.
